What It's About: Disney continues to churn out sequels in this franchise, but we still think the original is the best. Our first introduction to Johnny Depp's iconic Captain Jack Sparrow is one we'll never forget. The swashbuckling "hero" tries to regain control of his ship, the Black Pearl, after a mutiny from his shipmates. He has help from Orlando Bloom, who has tagged along to rescue the woman he loves from the pirates, played by Keira Knightley at the very young age of 17.
Why We Love It: From the first sound of "drink up, me hearties, yo ho!" to the epic sword fight between Depp and Bloom, we fell in love with this adventurous summer blockbuster. Although the film series has now spanned more than a decade with bigger budgets, more explosions and increasingly elaborate storylines, there's still a lot to love about "The Curse of the Black Pearl."
